I am researching the ancestry of my gg grandmother, referred to by the family as Ellen McLemore , but a family member in the past in writing her name spelled it Ellender McLemore. She was born 1833-34 in Mississippi, probably Clarke County, where in about 1850 she married Allen Martin, also from Clarke Co. The Martin's eventually moved to Union Co., Arkansas sometime around 1860. I am suspicious that she could be the "Eleanor Jane McLemore" listed on some McLemore family trees, and the daughter of Amos McLemore and Elizabeth Johnston McLemore. Looking at naming patterns for her children, she named my g grandmother Elizabeth, and two more daughters Jane and Annie, and also a son - Albert. Any information is greatly appreciated.
